Views from autumn 2022: MOB Psycho 100 III, Blue Lock, Fuufu Ijou, Koibito Mim.

MOB Psycho 100 III



Short summary:

The third and last season of “a local boy goes away during puberty and has difficulty controlling his emotions, exploding with mental chaos.”

Lenlo: It happened, everyone, the anime of the season has been broadcast, pack and go home.However, the joy of Moba’s return to the side, I really loved this episode.There were some minor inconsistencies in wise writing, for example, Reigen had to calculate his career survey during the year, even though MOB was directly asked about it earlier.But it was nothing more than the blinking of what, besides, was a really nice reminder of what their relationship became and how much they respect each other and care for each other.Combine it with the continuous excellent MOBA production, expressive animation and a beautiful color palette, and you will receive my favorite program of the season.But I expected it to be so in the past, when it was announced, so there is no great surprise here.


Potential:

99%

Amun: During the return of MOB – and great – I can’t help me that I am a bit sad, because this is clearly the beginning of the end. It has passed a bit since the last season and I have to admit that I forgot a bit who the new Reigen assistant is (was he a former bad last season?) – besides, it is nice to see our cast again. The plot look quite simple, with a dimple returning to their old ways, and MOB wants to take another step, as well as fight his new status of the resident of the religion of a broccoli tree (this is a strange sentence). Of course, the visual setting is still fantastic, and the MOB + Reigen dynamics is the highest shelf – everything we loved, returns to the game. I think OP showed it best, watching MOB grows up-that’s how I feel when we start this last season: a bit sweet and bitter to see our favorite fairy OP finally ends and ends our journey. But we haven’t finished yet and there are still plenty of bad spirits and stupid people to take care of!

Blue lock



Short description:

A talented player from the lost team is invited to Battle Royale: Soccer Edition.

Lenlo: I will just leave and say that Blue Lock is cool. Close 300 egoistic asshole in the building and tell them to eliminate each other in the style of hunger games to become the best striker in Japan? No “friendship” or “team work”, just active hunting for the strongest person and kicking his ass in football? Yes, it’s stupid. But Blue Lock plays so simply that I can’t resist spending time. And this is also strengthened by his visual setting. Strong, sharp lines, crazy eyes and proportions, the more characters fall into his own ego, i.e. muscles. Looks good! Football looks like jerking most of the time, the space is of course CGI and this can be said, just like the ball and many characters in the background in every stage. But Blue Lock diverts most of the time, so much that only marginally affected my impressions. So yes, when it comes to “foolish fun Shounen”, it is probably one of the stupidest, funniest and most “shounen” programs this season. And I’m going to watch it.

Mario: Speaking of “unwashed diamond”, about wounds, I just can’t go on how stupid blue lock is. Blue Lock, although it presents himself as football anime, is more like Kaiji or Squid Game – a survival, twisted thriller with a morally hero. To intensify the whole drama and personal conflict, the show strengthens it to 11. Just look at the prologue when the decision of our MC reflects on it – he is so devoted to its drama that he is on the edge of the fall under his sense of its own validity. The program completely lost me when a gamemaster appears and explains his twisted philosophy of nonsense. It is completely exaggerated with crazy eyes (I’m not a fan of character designs at all) and exaggerated gestures. Similarly, players are definitely selfish and wicked. It is certainly attractive for those who like to look at what is happening with the best anti -he -he -he -heman, but as the one who thinks that Squid is overrated, I can safely say that Blue Lock is not for me.

Fuufu ijou, Koibito Miman


Short description:

Two students decide to improve their relationships after they are forced to live together as part of marital practice in their high school.

Mario: It’s such a glaring configuration to combine a boy and a girl who finally fall in love (I expect it to be a physical train and they have nothing to do with understanding) and of course add more spice e -spice, they both have love for it, who are together. There are many red flags for this program (and I’m sorry, unlike Wooper, I can’t come up with any positive side). The first problem is that the episode is full of tired clues, from the supply of characters (virgin type, childhood friend, girl …) to situations that you literally saw in countless anime earlier (potato reaction-cuna to being close to a girl, she is not able to Name your sympathy with her name), and the list is still growing. Secondly, Potato-Cun is so simple and so far has no charisma, which also applies to the entire cast. Finally, the configuration of grouping students as a husband and wife is so stupid that I can’t really buy the concept itself. Oh well…

WOOPER: First of all, positives: contrasting colors of this series, which in most other shows would be equally bright, not great work consisting in complementing and opposing personality of properly feminine and male superiors. I also liked the Groov lines of the ED synthesizer, sensual vocal and artistic direction inspired by the 80s – so far it must be one of my favorite songs this year. It is a pity that everything else in Fuufu ijou caused me an allergic reaction, especially the assumption that high school students live together to “prepare for marriage.” What he is actually preparing is the arrows of the neckline, the bad anxiety of teenagers and a measurable romance for Otaku with obsession with the ranking. Students of this school cannot graduate if they do not get a good grade from the simulation of marriage, and fluctuations in the results of their marriages are updated in real time using a digital reading in their salons. You know, just like in a real marriage! The gloomy hero of the male sex (who is so pathetic that he monologues about behaving sadly, to attract the attention of a childhood friend) and his bossy partner Gyaru cannot endure, but they have to cooperate to reach rank and and choose the roommate in the next phase of this funny experiment. Only for them, she is too sexy, and what if they finally fall in love?! Each introduction of characters and the development of history during these twenty minutes seemed to be designed for people whose brains can no longer feel shame or exceeded the need for such a reaction. If you belong to one of these categories, you may like it, but I am not enlightened enough to avoid a factor of shame here.
